Sunday Afternoons at the EAC: Leslie Bowman—Why Paint
March 1 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pmFree
The Sunday Afternoons at the EAC series, a winter offering of informal and interactive programs every Sunday at 3 pm at Eastport Arts Center, continues with Leslie Bowman’s presentation, Why Paint. Bowman will discuss her lifetime of painting, and show a range of paintings produced over the last several decades, both figurative and non-figurative. She will talk about inspiration and process. Academically trained during the heyday of conceptual art and the rejection of perceptual painting, Bowman will explain how paint has provided her a personal way to explore and seek to understand the relationships between the tangible and the visceral.
Bowman has an MFA in Painting from Washington University in St. Louis. She obtained a BFA in Fine Arts from the Nova Scotia College of Art and also attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. Choosing to move to Washington County after graduation, she found employment as a photographer and adjunct professor at the University of Maine in Machias. She is the mother of two. Her photographs and paintings have been exhibited throughout the state.
Sunday Afternoons at the EAC programs are held downstairs at the EAC. Hot drinks and refreshments are offered; donations are gratefully accepted. The series will run through April, skipping Easter Sunday.
